I made this zucchini pizza from scratch which my 2-year-old actually ate.

Idk, I have been a nanny for years, and some kids just decided around 2/3 that they hate everything they used to love πŸ˜’πŸ˜‚

I put a big redesign update to my website Up Your A11y live πŸ˜…

To be honest there's still lots more I need to do to spruce it up and get everything as I want but I'm so happy with the improvement over the old UI.

I was very lucky to persuade illustrator Matt Peet to turn his hand to web design and collaborate on it with me πŸ™Œ

Completed a project to audit log Apple workstations that was due in November. I wasn't thrown into the loop on it until about January so required a lot of catching up.

Apple does not play nice with 3rd parties reading OS logs. After several failed attempts and Weeks of feeling lost in the Splunk, Apple, and other documentation sauce .... I got a SSL cert generated (never did this before) as a necessary step. Pulled in some very helpful devs who make their living from logging MacOS. The monkey is off my back (aka the higher ups) and I have a greater understanding of how this all works.

TLDR: I'm still a Linux / Windows guy πŸ˜› enjoy the weekend everyone.

Going on a much needed vacation to Europe in March. First time out of the States! If anyone has any friends in London/Spain, I'm all for making friends πŸ€—

I published my first NPM package EVER this week πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»πŸš€πŸ€™πŸ’ƒ

It's tiny and not useful for anyone outside of my company but I learned a lot through the process and it felt very cool to npm install my own package.

First time got bill from Netlify. But we want to stay at 0 USD application cost, even with 170 registered users and ~50 daily active ones 😎 . So optimized the build process a bit. It was simple, just was unaware of Netlify build hook feature. Thanks @ron4ex for the idea.

I got chance to set up a registration process for an event organized by BAPS (a spiritual organization). So far it is simple google form but will be automating few areas as >10k registrations are expected.

Saturday is also started exciting. We set up a boilerplate for new side project(hope I will announce soon) to our monorepo. Planning to explore NextJs as new tech with this project.

I started playing around with pixi.js for a small game I want to do (more a joke between friends but a valid excuse to try and learn something).

Also I'm done with my antibiotics (damm you tonsilits), so I can go back to not being stuck home...

And I managed to gather the guts to respond to something like this jn such a public square.

I moved my domain's DNS from Cloudflare after realizing that they can't register.dev domains or handle custom email forward/alias/proxy. I went back to Google who owns the .dev and emails work flawlessly to and from my Gmail using the custom domain.

Unfortunately I also found breakage in travis-ci.org this week that seems to be on their end and keeps me from being able to make any changes on my site.
